Fortnite chapter 4 season 2: the Mega season details

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 has kicked off with neon lights blazing, because the Mega season is full-on cyberpunk. There's a new blue biome with a Japanese-inspired set of locations, a central city with Sonic-like rails to ride, and of course a handful of new weapons.

Here's your guide to all the major changes in Chapter 4 Season 2 and how to get your hands on the new weapons, new vehicles, and more.

Fortnite's updated map

The Mega season has replaced the entire southeast corner of the map with a new bluish biome. Mega City with its skyscrapers, neon lights, and gliding rails is at its center if you want to dive right into some action. You can attack enemies from above while riding the rails that wind around the sky in Mega City so keep an eye out for your competition on the ground.

Past that are several other new areas:

  • Steamy Springs
  • Kenjutsu Crossing
  • Knotty Nets

There are lots of new landmark locations tucked into the new biome as well: from the Drift Ridge in the north to the zipline-accessible Coldwater Sanctuary island to Windcatching Lake at the top of a hill. 

Fortnite's new weapons and vehicles

Fortnite's Overlcocked Pulse Rifle

There are quite a few busted weapons this season. (Image credit: Epic Games)
  • Kinetic blade: A katana that uses the new "knockback slash" you'll want to use for some seasonal challenges. It also has a dash attack with three charges
  • Havoc suppressed assault rifle: A new silenced and accurate rifle
  • Havoc Pump Shotgun: A new nigh damage shotgun
  • Overclocked Pulse Rifle: A mythic pulse rifle earned by claiming the capture point on Loot Island
  • Unvaulted: Heavy sniper rifle
  • Unvaulted: Cobra DMR
  • Unvaulted: Dragon's breath sniper
  • Unvaulted: Combat shotgun
  • Unvaulted: Heisted exotic weapons

To pick up the new kinetic blade katana, your best bet is heading to the temple at Kenjutsu Crossing in the southeast corner of the map. There are other kinetic blade spawns in the Bamboo Circle, Sakura Circle, Cedar Circle and Sandy Circle all at the four corners of the biome, but heading for Kenjutsu is your best bet for the blade.

New vehicles coming to Fortnite chapter 4 season 2

  • Rogue Bike
  • Nitro Drifter (We have a handy guide on exactly how to find this vehicle)
  • Vaulted: the dirt bike

If you want to hop into one of the new rides in the Mega season, drop in on Drift Ridge, the curvy rally racing track on the north end of the new blue biome. You'll likely find your choice of Rogue Bike or Nitro Drifter hanging out there. As a second option, Mega City itself is also crawling with new wheels. 

Slurp Juice is super effective 

Slurp Juice has gotten a really big buff this season. The blue consumable now restores health and shield simultaneously at a much faster rate. Given the big boost it offers, you'll find it locked away in vaults, rifted-in points of interest, and combat caches.

Dungeons are back in Fortnite

The most recent Fortnite Save the World patch re-introduces dungeons into the fray. Players will be able to dive into these cryptic spots to gather rare weapons and recruit heroes to assist them along the way. 

There are currently three confirmed dungeons: Lab dungeon, Grotto dungeon, and Crypts dungeon; these grant Chaos Agent Hero, Swamp Knight Hero, and Mermonster Ken Hero, respectively.

How to Find and Defeat Highcard Bosses

One of this season's most sought after boss battles is Highcard, a Deathstroke-looking masked suit who is a high ranked member of Fortnite's Cold Blooded faction.  He doesn't appear at the start of the match though, you'll only be able to see him and his gang after the second circle starts during a Battle Royale match. Highcard is guaranteed to rift into Brutal Bastion, Mega City, and Shattered Slabs every match, so you have three opportunities to take him out and acquire Highcard's Havoc Suppressed Rifle.

Since Highcard spawns in three potential areas, your best bet is to land in whichever location is furthest from your Battle Bus' travel path. You want to clear out the area and loot as usual, playing it safe and sneaky until the second circle. When the storm starts closing, look up at the sky for a rift, and try to immediately start spraying at Highcard and his henchman. If you have a sniper, we recommend taking out his goons first, as they don't respawn and it will make the whole skirmish easier. Taking a long range battle or a short range shotgun rampage will do the trick, as you'll be staying out of the primary mid-range sweet spot for Highcard's Havoc Rifle.
